"Great character studies and atmosphere. Looks like the 80's generation has touched down to the harsh realities of life and living as two friends take a day off their normal existences to hunt down an old buddy who is suppossedly living homeless in Coney Island. The strange,yet so human people they meet while searching and the way they come to terms with themselves is riviting and this is absolutely one of the finest movies I've seen in a really long time.Sorry Fwongo!!"
"Ducky" (Jon Cryer) lives! And this one DOES come in VHS...

"If you were a fan of Jon Cryer's when he made all those teen movies, you'll be thrilled to know he is still alive and well - and acting - and doing quite a fine job of it. I think he shines in this film, where he gets to be more than cute and adorable in that quirky way he had - not quite teen movie handsome, just strange. Now he's older and better, in my opinion. I like small, independent movies, not those aimed at mainstream audiences and this story of 3 guys who were childhood friends and one of them who got lost is appealing, if a bit slow at times. It grew on me. By the way, this one IS available in VHS as well, although you'll have to search for it."
Great story based on a true story

"I'm a big fan of coney island the shots of the cyclone are terrific I went there last summer to see it for myself. I hope more people will see this movie the characters are intriging and very beleavable, if you had friends like these, the world would be a better place."
Great, Quirky, Touching Little film

"I saw this movie at a film festival in Rhode Island and it completely snuck up on me! It started out as this quirky little comedy and ended with an emotional punch that really surprised me. Great Acting, some laugh-out-loud funny scenes and characters I really cared about. All in all a great little film!"
